Lashings of lashes?

Another seemingly eternal mission I am on is the one to find the perfect mascara. Easier said than done, I tell you! In my work I try new products all the time and I still get giddy when I open a new tube of mascara thinking 'will this be The One?'. So last week I tried the Max Factor False Lash Effect in black....sadly it didn't rock my world, but it is a nice, basic everyday mascara with one of those new plastic brushes that people seem to love. False lash effect it ain't but I'm happy to use it till it's gone. It's good value at €14.99 and my lashes which are very ordinary did look good but not great! I expect a lot from my mascara.... this isn't The One but we'll stay friends.

Hi Ellie,

I'm a friend of Ivan from school, he had a link to your blog on facebook. Great idea, I'll be following with interest, as a worn out working Mum I could do with all the tips I can get! My problem with mascara is that the ones that I like on, I will have smudged within an hour, and the waterproof ones never look that great, why can't they combine the two?

Good luck with the blog,

Hi Fiona,

Thanks for your comment! A lot of people have that problem with mascara. I do think that the Lancome and Dior mascaras are the best for staying put. Also if you are wearing an under eye concealer be sure to powder it lightly, as the creamy formula of the concealer can 'grab' the colour from the mascara, powder will stop that happening.
